Items needed to make your Sexy Nurse Costume

Items Needed:
White dress
Red felt (8x11 rectangle)
White felt (8x11 rectangle)
“Wonder Under” fusible interfacing
Cardboard scrap
Bobby pins
White thigh–high fishnet stockings
Sexy nurse shoes
Nurse props


Step 1: Choose a white dress you no longer wear from your closet or purchase one from a resale shop. A white mini–skirt and a white blouse will also work well as a nurse costume. Cut several first aid crosses from the red felt, approximately 4” x 4”. Use the fusible interfacing to iron on the crosses decoratively on the dress pockets or anywhere you like.

Step 2: Referring to a picture, cut out a nurse hat shape from a scrap of thin cardboard (such as a cereal box). Glue on white felt and red cross in the center. After the nurse hat dries, you will secure it in your hair with bobby pins.

Step 3: Choose a pair of white stockings and shoes for your sexy nurse costume. Don’t even think about the traditional sensible shoes and opaque hose. Go with sexy fishnet thigh–high stockings and stiletto heels (you can even find sexy nurse shoes) and make the night shift the most popular shift on the ward.

Step 4: Bring along all sorts of nurse props such as a little nurse purse, a giant syringe, a stethoscope and more. You can make your own medical charts to carry along out of a simple clipboard and some official–looking notes.
